A Mad Tea Party

  I have found that living in England has made me come to love different aspects of America all the more. Also, I think I am writing from a bit of an odd frame of mind since there is a giant burning light in the sky whose overwhelming effervescence blinds me and scorches my skin.…

Connecting in Cardiff, Occupied in Oxford

Well, isn’t it just the way of life that when you imagine your plans are most set, you find that they are in fact most flexible? That was my experience this past weekend. First of all, the past week was quite nice in school. I went to two LeRoc classes (the dancing that is a…

The Plans, They Are a-Changing

Well friends, it has been a wonderful past week! My plans have had to alter a bit, as I did not get to go to Scotland as I had planned (believe me, I was extremely bummed!), but I did end up having a lovely weekend nonetheless.             I did indeed go to Valentine’s day formal,…

Turkey

  It is wonderful to be in Greece. Turkey had its moments of fun, but overall, thus far, I much prefer Greece. Granted my perspective is probably highly biased because, for most of my time in Turkey, I was utterly exhausted.             We arrived in Turkey around 12am after having left JUC (Jerusalem University College)…
